Ouch! While you were on a roll there for a few questions, you didn’t pass this time. But I know this test, and I think you’ll pass next time. Really.

1. Shippers must label hazardous materials. If an item is smaller than its label, how should the item be labeled?

The label may be attached to a tag that is securely attached to the package.
The item may be marked with a large orange dot.
The item may be placed in a box displaying a warning label.

Shippers must place diamond-shaped hazard warning labels on most packages of hazardous materials. If the label won't fit on the package, it can be placed on a tag that is securely attached to the package.

You must stop before crossing the tracks.
You must reduce your speed before crossing the tracks.

Drive to find a phone to alert emergency personnel
Drive to a designated hazardous materials clean up facility
Park the vehicle and contact emergency personnel
Continue driving to the destination

In the event of a leak in a cargo of hazardous materials, do not continue to drive any longer than is necessary for safety. Continuing to drive would result in a larger area becoming contaminated. Instead, park the vehicle, secure the area, stay with the vehicle, and send someone to get help.
